Hey, I'm doing the srv/msg tutorial ( http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials/Cre... ), and I'm having an error when i use catkin_make, after changing the CMakeLists.txt and package.xml and generally following the tutorial (and the previous tutorials).

I'm totally new to ROS, and It'll be great if someone can help me out, because I'm pretty lost. After having this error I even tried deleting my progress and recreating it, only to get this same error message again.

Here's my error:

Also, I added these two lines to my package.xml:

  <build_depend>message_generation</build_depend>
  <run_depend>message_runtime</run_depend>

And my CMakeLists.txt looks like this:

(It's mostly comments. All according to the tutorials, I hope)

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)
project(beginner_tutorials)

## Find catkin macros and libraries
## if COMPONENTS list like find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS xyz)
## is used, also find other catkin packages
find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS
  roscpp
  rospy
  std_msgs
  message_generation
)

## System dependencies are found with CMake's conventions
# find_package(Boost REQUIRED COMPONENTS system)


## Uncomment this if the package has a setup.py. This macro ensures

I have seen this error when the catkin workspace's CMake gets moved inside of a package. That may be your issue.

Here I leave the required files, also consider changing to catkin build instead of catkin_make, is a better build system. You can install by doing sudo apt install python-catkin-tools python3-catkin-tools

CMakeLists.txt

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)
project(beginner_tutorials)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS
    roscpp
    std_msgs
    message_generation
)

## Generate messages in the 'msg' folder
add_message_files(
    FILES
    Num.msg
)

## Generate services in the 'srv' folder
add_service_files(
    FILES
    AddTwoInts.srv
)

## Generate added messages and services with any dependencies listed here
generate_messages(
    DEPENDENCIES std_msgs
)

catkin_package(
    INCLUDE_DIRS
    LIBRARIES beginner_tutorials
    CATKIN_DEPENDS roscpp std_msgs message_runtime
    DEPENDS
)

package.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package>
